(bottle) Clear, ruby brown colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Toasty malty aroma with notes of caramel, dark bread and a delicately hoppy touch. Moderately sweet and slightly roast-bitter flavour, light bodied but not watery with a smooth carbonation. Toasty malty taste with caramel, bread crusts and dark chocolate; dry-ish, roasty bitter finish with a subtle doughy acidity. Pleasant and rounded. 07.VI.10 MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2005

Creamy fruit salad sailing on an underlying bock-like malt sweetness. Roasted caramel and ashes complete the semi-complexity.
Cloying caramel in an almost nitroed, soft and round body. Sweet chocolate melting into a weak roastiness.
Thick icing on a thin cake is not necessarily as enjoyable as it could be.
Bottle from Alko in Pello.
Dark brown with a nice tan head.
Bread, roasted malt and caramel in the aroma. Quite thin mouth feel, taste of chocolate, nuts, roasted malt and caramel. An ok beer.

Bottle. Deep amber brown with a beige head. Malty sweet caramel base, very low bitterness, faint roasted notes, and moderate sweetness lasting throughout the finish. Not bad. Skinnyviking (9767) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2008

bottle. train rating. moderately creamy texture, overall pretty good for bottled dunkel but of course doesn’t match fresh draft anything. toffee, coffee cake, toast, all there but with an oily butter and metal note. taste some bottle and bottle cap in there.
